The CCMTA-Police Partnership Award honours the achievements of active individual police officers, units or their overall service in developing key relationships with private or government sector agencies involved in highway transportation safety at a local, regional, provincial/territorial or national level.
This award recognizes police leadership in building partnerships that result in the development and/or implementation of unique road safety strategies and programs that focus on reducing injuries and saving lives and, while also raising awareness within the police community and the public to "Rethink Road Safety" and make Canada's roads the safest in the world.
The strategic goals of Canada's Road Safety Strategy (RSS) 2015 are to:
- raise public awareness and commitment to road safety;
- improve communication, cooperation and collaboration among all stakeholders;
- enhance enforcement; and,
- improve road safety information in support of research and evaluation.
Police communities developing strategic relationships with their
highway safety partners and
collectively making road travel safer is key to Canada's Road Safety
Submissions do not require the inclusion of data which identifies
actual injury or life saving
reduction statistics but they should explain the benefits and outcomes
realized through the
combined efforts of the working relationship.
